Whenever I am in the area this place is a must stop location. If you like onions then get the loaf to share with your table-mate. The burger on their home made dark rye is my main go-to meal here. Some day I will have to try something else.... maybe.

Highly rated by friends and relatives, we came for a family lunch. There's not much to recommend this place. Slow service, surly waiter, mediocre food. They used to have a good reputation, but have fallen off the charts in my opinion.

Haven't been there for 40 years since I left the Chicago area. What a wonderful treat to come back & find the same great foods. Don't miss the onion rings - they're unique & delicious.

We went for dinner on Saturday night, and were told the wait would be 15 minutes for our 6 person group. An hour later, we were finally seated, as they don't take reservations into account when they guess the wait times. Service once at the table was good, and the food was delicious- especially the pretzel burger. Also had the... More

Been to Hackney's on Lake (and the Original Hackney's on Harms) a zillion times over the past 30 years, and it's always a valid dining suggestion. Though I prefer the small Harms restaurant personally, the big Lake St restaurant has more room and offers more indoor seating that is possible int he old place. I think the corned beef was... More

We don't get it. Came here because we had a coupon for $10 off. The house wine was awful, we asked for a burger rare and no fries, and got a well done burger with fries.served on cold bread with blue cheese that wasn't melted.it seems that people go there just for the deep fried onions. The waiter could care... More

I had dinner at Hackney's for a 50th class reunion. I remember eating there in the 1960's and it's still going strong. I highly recommend newcomers to try the "Hackney Burger" along with their well known house standard: "fried onion rings".

Recently attending a family birthday party in one of their party rooms. I have to say the waut staff was over the top helpful. From serving to clearing , refilling drinks and even taking special orders and running to get them. And all with a smile. The food is about what you'd expect from an upscale burger place, nothing wowed,... More

Hackney's is one of my family's favorite burger places. Nothing fancy, but always a treat! We sit outside when the weather permits. Service is attentive and you're never rushed. A very popular place, especially on weekends when the weather is ideal. A must try is the onion loaf which is a signature appetizer at Hackney's. You'll get a great burger... More

Good Patty Melts. The restaurant is known for its burgers but especially for its onion rings. This restaurant has never disappointed. I also like there chili. My brother-in-law always raved about their ribs.
